Went to Cosmos on our last day only because we were tired of the traffic going anywhere elsse and it was a few minutes away and they had wine and beer. Had the Margarhita pizza which was good. My only issue, and this is for OBX in general, is that there is "lunch" up to 3:00' the restaurants close and... More

I have been eating at Cosmos's since I moved to the Outer Banks in 2002. It's the best pizza around and many other locals agree. Located in The Market Place Shopping Center in Southerns Shores. It's not a big place but the pizza is so so good. The crust is amazing, the ingredients are fresh, and the sauce has great... More

The pizza was good. The $4 salads were not. We were dead tired the evening of our arrival and just wanted something quick and easy for our first night. It was nearby and recommended.

First time trying this pizza. It was wonderful!!! We stay in the Duck area and have had Wave and Pizza Stop Pizza over the years and we found Cosmo's to be far superior. We opted for a carry out Supreme, light on the cheese (and picked up hot wings from Sooey's BBQ in Scarborough Faire). Cosmo's didn't scrimp on the... More

No frills, limited seating, limited beer options, but the pizza is amazing! Not much to look at from the outside, and please don't let the fact that it's a strip mall pizza shop keep you away. The staff is great and the pizza is amazing. It's a tradition to hit this place our first night in OBX every year. NY... More

I went to Cosmo's for a sandwich and it was just average. I ordered the Italian mix and got ham instead (unless Italian mix means ham). The bread was very good and was the best part of the sandwich. I would have given two starts rather than three, but the sandwich was very inexpensive so I do not feel I... More

I ordered a turkey and cheese sub from cosmos today. I picked it up and drove home to eat. When I got home and unwrapped the sub first thing I noticed was it was not turkey and cheese it was a ham and cheese. I was very hungry so I decided to not make a big deal out of it... More

This small pizza place was right across the highway from my time share. I tried to call in an order but couldn't get connected, so I drove over to order a sub. The prices were much better than what I had seen elsewhere on the Outer Banks and the sub was good. The one thing that bothered me was that... More

Stayed in Duck, NC and the pizza shops were all closed for the season, so we wandered down to Southern Shoes in the hopes to find a pizza place open. We found Cosmo's! A diamond in the rough. Located in The Market Place off of US 158. Ordered a large cheese pizza to go. It was ready in 7 min.... More

We always, always, always stop at Cosmo's Pizzeria when at the OBX. We ate there Christmas week in 2013 and, as usual, experienced great service and great pizza. We will be coming back next time we're down there.
